Facilities Committee Update
By Tiffany Goldstein
At the August 4th Kings Park Board of Education meeting, the facilities committee updated the Kings Park community on our schools properties. This meeting was held to inform the residents of Kings Park about the concerns that the committee has about where the children go to school each and every day. They overlooked Fort Salonga, Park View, San Remo, RJO, William T. Rogers, and the Kings Park High School. The Kings Park Central School District works together to create a safe and beneficial learning environments for the students.
According to the facilities committee we have between $12-$14 million of areas we need to repair throughout the district. This decision was made when the school board of education, superintendent, principals, and building and grounds took a tour in August and September of 2014, of our schools and highlighted the areas that need the most attention. Superintendent Doctor Timothy Eagen states that the repairs on the district will be a five-year process.
Areas of concern: After touring each school the administration came to the conclusion that each school needs new roofing, besides Park View elementary school. This school had the roof replaced after the horrific hurricane Sandy that took place; this Roof is currently two years old. Paving of sidewalks and curbs will be done, having this fixed will help parents and guardians and students as well come safely in and out of the schools. The plumping is a major problem in our district, Kings Park resident and proud parent of students who attend Kings Park School District Mrs. Mangogna states “ My children wait to go to the bathroom, because they refuse to go in school”, therefore Kings Park will fix the bathrooms and make it a healthier and more appealing environment. Mrs. Mangogna also stated the issues about the condition of our athletic fields and facilities. Looking at the big picture, there is 81% of health, safety and security projects that need to be repaired In the district, 8% infrastructure, 8% athletics and recreation projects, and 2% of curriculum and instruction that needs to be done to the High School library. We aim to better our district in every way possible, however to make everything perfect for the students, it will take some time. (more…)
